I’ve mentioned ice cream vans and milk floats on the blog before. I’m quite interested in that lost delivery and van sales thing – chip vans, mobile shops, bakers vans – but there seems to be precious little local material about. I’m inviting contributions from anyone who has anything to please get in touch, as I fear we’re in danger of losing this stuff if we’re not too careful. The menu cards from vans and freezers, for example – they brought memories flooding back – but who on earth would think to save them?
All images link to the originals in the Flickr galleries they’re from. Please do click on them and have a browse – Lady Wulfrun is a new face here on pictures from the past, and she’s got some incredible stuff there. I thank profusely all the photographers involved.
